Kemblefield – 2012 Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc

Pale and refreshing, this wine gives up aromas of light gooseberry and pineapple, overlaying a citrus background.  The flavors are crisp and bright, with citrus predominating.  The acidity is fairly pronounced, and even though the alcohol is very modest at 13%, there was just a hint of heat on the tongue.  Be sure not to over chill so that the flavors and aromas can fully develop.  This wine has a nice finish, and pairs very nicely with a crisp summer salad of greens and fruit, with grilled chicken.
